I specialise in working with trauma clients and have a deep appreciation of the complex and long-lasting impacts it can have on you. In some cases, therapy itself can be a source of more trauma. Your safety is my highest priority as we work together and empower you to have a say in how we approach your symptoms. There is no one size fits all and so with your feedback, we will find the best suited interventions for you.
Along with trauma, comes the emotions and behaviours that are interfering with your life. Anxiety, depression, difficult/abusive relationships, addictive behaviours, and self-harm can all be caused or made worse by a trauma history. Understanding these symptoms through an empathetic, trauma informed lens ensures we reach the actual source of the issue.
There is so much stigma surrounding trauma and the shame you may feel. It may be scary to reach out for help. I get it. When you are ready, I will be here for you. Without blame or judgment and ready to help you step into the life you deserve. Stay in touch through my social media or read more through my blogs at deeperperspective.au.

Many of my clients find interventions from my Emotion Focused Therapy, which facilitates deep exploration of underlying emotions and trauma trapped in the body. I complement this with a parts perspective which often can help when self-sabotage is present or negative internal talk. Underpinning these approaches is a sense of collaboration; two people working together towards the same goal.
